's review
Jun 26, 2007

did not like it
bookshelves: general-fiction, dystopian, read-for-school
Read in September, 1998

** spoiler alert ** I hated this book in high school.

How on earth could teenage boys act so savagely? It's ridiculous. All I can picture is Piggy's head on a stick. Sickening. And a conch shell.

Beth A. This review looks like it contains a spoiler...

I know I'm probably the only person on earth who hasn't read it, but just in case could you click the spoiler box?

Sara ♥ Check! Sorry about that! If it's any consolation, I don't think I really remember what happened very clearly.... Blegh on the book, though, IMO.

Beth A. Thanks! Opinion seems to be very mixed on this one. I guess I'm about to find out for myself.

Sara ♥ Good luck! I don't think I was old enough to be able to handle the content when I had to read the book... that probably had something to do with it. That, and the genre isn't my favorite. I hope you like it better than I did!

Lisa Wow, you REALLY don't remember the book, Sara. Haha. I won't say more than that but you should re-read it. It's really a fantastic book (and fyi, Piggy does NOT have his head put on a stick).

Sara ♥ Gick. Maybe someday.... You need to put up a profile picture!

Beth A. So I guess it's not a spoiler... it didn't really happen that way... lol...

Sara ♥ Exactly. ;)
